Gooseneck or 5th wheel

I have been listening to the pros and cons of a 5th wheel hitch or a gooseneck he had a goose and it took a lot longer to unhook because it had to be raised higher then the ball if the batteries would of shorted out he could have lost his truck. I was on the fence no more pull the pin on a 5th wheel and let it hit the tail gate to the ground.

Good point really for whatever reason, all you do is chock the trailer tires, block up the landing gear and pull out from under it & your done. Not happening with a ball hitch.
